Sword & Silk Staff Announcement!

Hello and happy Friday! It's a busy, busy time of year but the Sword & Silk team is grinding away behind the scenes and we are very excited to welcome our first interns to the team!

Sword & Silk is pleased to welcome Shania Turner to our Marketing Team!

Shania Turner is the newly minted Sword and Silk Marketing Intern.

She has always been an avid reader, particularly of romance, and enjoys reading as much as possible. As a 2021 English Literature graduate from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, she has many long nights of reading, researching, and writing essays under her belt.

When she isn’t reading, she loves to roller skate and attend live music events.

She has a weakness for villains, primarily Loki in the Marvel Universe, and drummers (she is dating one).

What are some of your favorite reads?

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab, and Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

What is at the top of your TBR pile?

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover, The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake, White Magic by Elissa Washuta, Slewfoot by Gerald Brom, and A Tip for the Hangman by Allison Epstein

Sword & Silk is pleased to welcome Starla Rajavuori to our Acquisitions Team!

Starla enjoys reading all sorts of stories, and especially loves charmingly snarky characters and morally ambiguous villains who keep you guessing. She is a genre jumper, but her favorites tend to be sci-fi and fantasy.

When she’s not working on her own book or getting lost in others’, she might be found hiking the mountains of Southern California, baking up a storm, or in front of the TV maintaining her status as a film buff.

What are some of your favorite reads?

The Inquisitor’s Tale by Adam Gidwitz, Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

What is at the top of your TBR pile?

The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He, The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell, We Cast A Shadow by Maurice Carlos Ruffin, The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

We are so excited to have you on board!

Sword & Silk is currently no longer actively seeking to fill positions, however, if you would like to work with us, please submit an application as we will be expanding in the future! See our internship page for details.
